Prof Erik Knudsen will present a paper on 1st June entitled: Research Is Research Is Research


In his presentation, Erik Knudsen will discuss ongoing uncertainties around the perception of media practice research and the struggles that often persist around articulating the relationship between creative practice and academic research. He will ask whether, outside the realm of the explosion in practice led PhDs, there is actually as much practice led media research as the media practice community believes. He will also ask to what extent we are comfortable with our understanding of the relationship between media practice research and the idea of new knowledge and insights. Erik will then draw on recent REF2014 UoA36 feedback, and experience of AHRC peer reviewing and panel work, to highlight key challenges around the relationship between creative media practice and the demands of research that leads to new insights through the qualitative assessment of originality, significance and rigour.
